The technical assistance (TA) will focus on initiating regional cooperation and further development of the business case for a regional funding mechanism for long-term control and prevention of malaria and other communicable diseases in Asia and the Pacific region, in collaboration with governments and development agencies. The TA is in line with ADB Strategy 2020 and Operational Plan for Health, and the Regional Cooperation and Integration Strategy. Regional integration is one of three institutional objectives under ADB corporate guidance of Strategy 2020, which explicitly recognizes health security from communicable diseases, such as malaria, as a regional public good. Regional integration both emphasizes the threat of rapid transmission of communicable diseases, and expands opportunities for addressing them.
